Promoting adoption, spay/neuter, and forever homes

Foster Kitten Update #1

A Watchful Mother


Kittens at about 10 days old

Mommy and babies are doing just fine. All 5 babies have doubled in size and several have opened (or are opening) their eyes. I haven’t determined their gender yet, but should be able to figure it out in a week or so. (Determining the gender of kittens can be really difficult—honest!)

I’m thinking of naming Mommy “Snow White” and her babies after the 7 dwarfs. Corny, I know, but about the time Mommy came into my life there was a big promotion of Disney’s Snow White—can you believe it’s been 75 years since that film was made? Anyway, I like to pick names that are a little different, so when a potential adopter is searching Petfinder or the LAPCATS site, my fosters are memorable from all the other sweet faces needing homes.

The first white baby has a black smudge on the top of his/her head. I have no idea yet how we’re going to be able to tell the other two white babies apart.

Mommy has a small sore under her left eye that I will work on this week.  I don’t think it’s anything serious, but she is far too pretty to let even something superficial mar her beauty.

If you missed the introduction/first post on the kittens (and fostering experience), see Embark Upon A Foster Experience.  Mommy and her kittens will all be available for adoption in 3-4 months through LAPCATS.
